Hi, I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee with straight 6 cyclinder engine.The check engine lights on and Itook get to be put on a machine and the codes readed P0132,P0135,P0300,P0301,and P0420. Could you tell me


p132+ an O2 sensor reading is high bank1,sensor1, p135=O2 Heater circuit is bad, bank1,sensor1.

P300= Random misfires, p301 misfire cylinder1.p302 misfire cylinder2

p420 Bank1 Catalytic converter efficiency failing

What this means is that the Bank1 O2 sensor is either bad or the wiring to it is defective. Check for heat burnthrough on wires. The misfires started randomly and now pinpoint to cylinders 1 and 2.

The Catalytic converter failing because the misfires are clogging it. This can self correct once the cylinders stop misfiring.

Which messed up first is where you start solving this. Replace the O2 sensor, it is fouled out on Bank1. The heater circuit(p135) just makes it work faster and has little effect once you are underway. But high resistence in the O2(p132) means it is coated and ineffective.

There is a problem with firing #1 and #2 sparkplug. Probably the cause for the Catalytic converter plugging. A cracked coil, plug wires, sparkplugs are some causes as well as dirty fuel injectors on those 2 cylinders.

It is a cause and effect situation where 1 part fails and damages another. You need to fix the source of the problem or you will repeat th damage.

Two weeks ago when i went to drive my 2004 Oldsmobile Alero..it was hesitating and started to shake if i went above 25. Then the service engine light came on and was blinking at me. I kept it under 20 and...


it could be ignition coil(coil pack). misfire and vacuum leaks gives you engine light's on. and if fuel pump or filter not good, engine wont start.

Misfires in Cyl. 5 and 6, after changing problem continued


white smoke indicates the engine is burning antifreeze, you could have head gasket issue, if thats the case the antifreeze is getting in the cylinders and the engine is burning it. could be a stuck exhaust valve( i doubt it). find out from ford what that code indicates, that would be a better clue than tearing into the motor

Engine light code P0300


I would recommend going back with ac/delco platinum plugs.Some of these "high performance" plugs dont work well in newer gm vehicles.The computer is sensing more than one cylinder misfiring and cant determine the cylinders the style of plug your using could very well be causing this
